Summer of Color 2 - Icecream Inspirations



Hi, the Summer of Color 2 has started and its all about using Icecream color inspirations which has been dream't up by Kristin of Twinkle Twinkle (see my sidebar).  This week its Rainbow
Sherbert..............looks yummy doesn't it..........mmmmmmmmmmmm


This page was painted with acrylics and a stamped background.  The little bird was added digitally.
Am way behind with my entry, they already have 84 entries, wow how great is that.........

I also promised to show you my prize from Andrea over at Smudgemastic - a pumpkin pincushion
So fab

Andrea also sent me some diecuts, which is wonderful.  Thank you Andrea for this brilliant prize.

My husband is improving each day which is marvellous and my mother who is 87 had a hysterectomy on Monday and is doing well...................yep this has been a most stressful time.  But hopefully things are looking a whole lot better.  I will do my very best to catch up with all of your blogs but it could take me some time.

In the meantime take care of yourselves and will see you soon, Hugs Annette xx
